This November, glór celebrates a milestone 21 years in business. Since opening its doors in 2001, more than 950,000 people have attended over 8200 ticketed performances and events at glór.

To celebrate reaching its milestone 21st birthday, glór is collaborating with broadcaster and producer Áine Hensey to present a 21st birthday concert which will once again raise the roof and feature a host of special guests from Clare and beyond, celebrating our creative community through music, dance, and word. The concert will also feature just some of the many recent collaborations that glór is very proud of.

Mc’d by Therese McInerney the concert will feature some of Clare’s finest musicians and performers including Tim Collins, Ceara Conway, Éamonn Cotter, Gráinne Cotter, Geraldine Cotter, Marian Curtin, Diarmuid de Faoite, Maeve Donnelly, Eimear Howley, Sharon Howley, Aisling Lyons, Seán Lyons, Mary Mac Namara, Andrew MacNamara, Therese McInerney, Naomi Louise O’Connell, Emer O’Flaherty, Síomha, Sean Shannon, Dermot Sheedy and many more. 21 years later a generation of younger Clare musicians and performers will take to the stage to echo the opening night performance and to celebrate in true Clare style.

Produced by Áine Hensey in partnership with glór, the concert will bring together a flavour of Clare’s rich musical and theatrical talent that has delighted audiences in the past 21 years. Raise a glass to glór and recall your own favourite glór moments in the foyer with live music before and after the concert.

This November, glór celebrates a milestone 21 years in business. Since opening its doors in 2001, more than 950,000 people have attended over 8200 ticketed performances and events at glór.

Following the official opening on Friday 30th November 2001 by Minister Síle de Valera before a specially invited audience, over 60 great Clare performers – three generations of the best players of Clare music took to the glór stage, including Tony McMahon, Paddy Canny, James Cullinan, Tony Linnane, Noel Hill, Siobhan Peoples, Martin Hayes, Josephine Marsh, Maura O’Connell, the Tulla Céilí Band, and the Kilfenora Céilí Band, to present a night of music such as has never been heard before. With Martin Hayes and the Sawdoctors performing over the next two nights, without doubt the opening weekend of glór was one of the best three nights of music ever staged in County Clare. The opening night concert was broadcast in full by Clare FM, and RTÉ Radio One transmitted the second half.
